I feel certain they're part of the interior. But I can't remember where

These go somewhere in the interior of my 1940160. But where?

Interior panels and painting the engine compartment: the back seat armrest were laying in the car when we bought it. ripped and deformed. other panels like the thin piece between the doors broke when I removed it ( those ribbed nail fasteners were not meant for easy removal). If I fixed them with fiberglas they would be too rigid and don't take their permanent shape until they're mounted in place. I used a two part epoxy paint (that can be tinted to any color you choose) for the engine compartment and door jams, it's insanely strong but goes on thick and even when sprayed it has a texture. perfect for an engine compartment and frame suspension pieces. I noticed when leftover pieces dried they formed a hard rubber like puck. I used cloth as fiberglas mat, outdoor plastic signs to replace the sections that were rotted away and tape to hold the form close. I painted multiple coats to stiffen and repair the panels with newspaper and weights to straighten flat panels and it worked out well. the panels are bendable and strong.

I think our '47 had the same engine. maybe they raised the compression though. The super eight will pin you in the seat, it is a 356 cubic inch after all. We traded for the earlier styling. There's a chunk of time from the mid to late '30s where the 110 six and 120 small eight were newer and therefore better designs than the senior models of the same years.

I thought the six was fine, it had plenty of torque to start out in second. the super right is much more so of course

Here's one. The fancy part on the side of the hood is very complicated. in boxes I found the curved parts with new chrome(score), but I didn't have the top and bottoms that hold it together. I didn't even know what it looked like. I found a very rusted one on eBay and bought it. I took it to AAA metal fabrication up the street and they reproduced it using my pattern out of mirrored stainless. it's basically just an angled piece with slots cut out for the tabs on the curved pieces. Looks perfect, just like chrome. The best part was they only charged me a hundred bucks for all of them. I couldn't even get the real ones chromed for that If I had them.

I used a box fan gun, they have very little overspray and no water through the air line.

Thanks, I have the vertical bars with new chrome, but not the horizontal ones. I'm attracted to the oldest body styling with the newest mechanicals

when I was a kid we'd just pull out the plugs, fill it with oil or diesel and turn it over so it got pressure. don't run it too long or it will toast the starter.
